A critical aspect of making software and systems accessible is establishing viable working relationships between vendors and clients. In this interactive session, we will share the strengths of one collaborative model established by the University of Montana and Moodlerooms and explore other strategies for engaging vendors in the development of accessible learning tools.

OUTCOMES: Learn how to identify client interaction models that increase the likelihood of vendor participation in the collaborative development of accessible solutions * Identify collaborative tools (software) that can be used with assistive technologies during prototyping and user interface design testing sessions to provide feedback to vendors * Learn about various types of collaborations and determine when it is most advantageous for institutions to jointly approach vendors and work toward accessible product design
